    My fiancee and I have been using zillow.com for our search for a condo. It has been extremely helpful. Be careful though. There are scammers everywhere–one guy tried to scam us in fact. He wanted money sent to him before he sent a key. Ha, stupidity. Don’t be ignorant and fall for their obvious tactics!
